Comment: American DREAMs - A New York Times editorial states: "If the Dream Act passes, credit must go to those who have fought for it most strenuously, at greater personal risk and inconvenience than anyone else: the young people whose futures it will decide." The battle for the DREAM Act has featured undocumented immigrants stepping out of the shadows to declare themselves "undocumented and unafraid." Given the impasse over immigration law since 9/11, our country has witnessed an unusual phenomenon: a large number of long-time undocumented aliens. This group has cowered in the shadows, afraid of drawing notice to themselves. In contrast, the young Americans who would benefit by DREAM have stepped bravely into the light. Without any connection to the power brokers on the Hill "the DREAMers" have proven that they can get their pet bill on the radar of the professionals, and on the Congressional agenda. These youth are Americans, except on paper. They are ready to join our armed forces and protect our country and are ready to put their college education to work in our economy.
We welcome the signs by Majority Leader Reid and Speaker Pelosi that they will bring DREAM for a vote in the respective chambers. However, to enact DREAM, all stakeholders need to chip in. Democrats need to reach across the aisle; Republicans need to remember the values that motivated them to co-sponsor the DREAM Act back in 2003; pro-immigrant organizations need to mobilize their bases and spend their funding and resources in ways that can make a difference in this battle; and finally, Congressional leaders and President Obama need to fulfill their promises and make the American dreams of our undocumented youth happen. To express support for DREAM to Congress, call: 866-587-3023.
